Overview (from LSF)

Learning Content

In this course, we discuss advanced Data Mining methods for Data Science:

* Dealing with VELOCITY: methods for supervised, semi-supervised and unsupervised learning on data streams

* Dealing with VOLATILITY: learning and adaption on dynamic data

* Dealing with VOLUME: methods for learning on high-dimensional data

* VERACITY: incorporating expert knowledge into the learning process

From the applications' perspective, we focus on web applications and on applications from the domain of medical research.

Description Data Mining II - Advanced Topics in Data Mining


Examination materials for DM II extended!
One part of the DM II exam (no more than 30%) will include questions on
a single paper, which the students read at home and compare to the
papers presented so far in the course.

A student can choose between following options:

Option "Homework Paper Assignment for In-Class Discussion": a student
participating to this option gets a paper assigned. The student reads
the paper, presents excerpts of this paper in class and receives
feedback. During the exam, this student must answer questions tailored
to that paper.

Option "Homework Default Paper": a student reads the "default" paper.
During the exam, this student must answer questions tailored to that paper.

The papers for both options, as well as questions for both options, can
be found in the last part of the DM II slideset.

Participation for the "Homework Paper Assignment for In-Class
Discussion" via
* registration during the exercise meeting of May 31, or
* via mail until June 4, 12:00 to either the class teacher or exercise tutor
Assignments will be made during that week. In exceptional cases, a paper
can also be assigned to a student who sends a mail later, but there is
no guarantee that the paper can then be presented in class.

Participation to the class meetings of DM II is not mandatory. However,
feedback for the option "Homework Paper Assignment for In-Class
Discussion" is only given while the papers are presented in the class.
Students who cannot attend the classes are advised towards option
"Homework Default Option".
